BASID Annual Dinner, August 26, 2022

The Future is Now

Dr. & Mrs. Future

Friday, August 26, 2022. 6:00 PM to 9:00 PM PDT

The Bay Area Chapter of SID invites you and your guest to the BASID 2022 Annual Dinner

Join your local display industry colleagues for a summer evening full of delicious food, great company, a beautiful location, and a moving keynote address!

Sponsored by Silvaco and Applied Materials.

For this year’s presentation, our keynote speakers, Allan & Sun Lundell, will conduct a live audience version of their popular radio program, “The Dr. Mrs. Future Show.” Broadcasting on talk radio station KSCO every Tuesday afternoon primetime for the last 12 years, Allan & Sun, as Dr.Mrs. Future, discuss all things future to their Monterey Bay/San Jose audience, on AM/FM and streaming on the web. The future includes science, technology, the internet and consciousness research. They hold that we are entering a true renaissance that will make the one that occurred during the Middle Ages seem like child’s play, and that our future is bright. The big issues of today, such as a politically fractured culture and catastrophic climate change, will be resolved as we embrace our larger identities as global humans and take action.

As a tech and culture journalist for years in the Bay Area (Byte, Infoworld, DV, Mondo 2K, Wired) Allan Lundell has kept his finger on the pulse of change and is optimistic about what we can achieve next. And as a pioneer of the desktop publishing revolution and veteran of the analog to digital transition of media, Sun, as Mrs Future, is very articulate in helping us more fully grasp the big changes looming on the horizon. The specific topics discussed will be based on what is most in the news at the time of their presentation, for… The Future is Now.
